In reality, our express parcel fleet customers take compliance just as seriously as other sectors. However, if you are LGV only, then pre-shift checks are not as demanding and can be prepared to cover the minimum for daily checks for FORS and FTA’s Van Excellence, with other non-safety/regulatory checks, such as fluid levels, tyre tread depths, etc. requested once a week. So LGV drivers can check-and-go! You will still know who has, and who hasn’t, done them and receive full details of any defects.
HGVs of course are subject to the full DVSA pre-shift safety check demands, plus the extra FORS checks, if applicable. So there are no shortcuts but SmartCheck does allow the check process to be swift yet thorough.
